AoY Podcast #123 – High School Agent Review


Also known as: “I blame you Hallmark… You turned my dog into an Imperial Theme!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:41:52)

What better way to kick off the start of 2018 with an anime that hardly no one has seen or even reviewed yet, because if you did know it, we’d have to kill you for knowing too much. This time we talk about High School Agent!

(0:00 – 43:15) Review: High School Agent – This is an anime with no Wikipedia entry, hardly nothing about it on MAL, and very little info on ANN. Only a lone fansub group has made it a priority to make this available online to whoever can find it. It’s so top secret, the UN might have to intervene in this podcast. It’s basically an OVA adaptation of a manga about a dumb high school kid who becomes a secret agent for the United Nations. Instead of stopping people behind genocide, world hunger and sex trafficking, its about stopping people who have priceless stones and neo-Nazis after Hitler’s gold. Those are way more serious international issues than what most people complain about, because High School Agent knows what’s really at stake in the world! This also includes talks about terrible commercial airline companies, how not to kill a bear, and what type of jungles exist in South America.

(43:15 – 1:41:52) Closing Remarks – This goes into the doxing of a troll gone too far towards Chris Chan, the recent American Government shutdown, Dustin pulls a cans.wav and almost breaks his headset from a birthday card, Ghost talk, past podcasts that no longer exists from Toonradio, Go Nagai shows to be remade other than Devilman Crybaby, the recent Jumanji movie and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – This podcast will self destruct in 5 seconds to this annoying song…

ED – Take this airline job and shove it!

This show has:

Richard Spencer future daughter?

A Luger cannot win against a freggin bear…

A SJW fantasy to cold cock a Nazi…

WHICH FREAKING ONE???

The most relaxed animal you’ll ever see in a war…

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:31:05)

What better way for our podcast to celebrate the America’s 240th Fourth of July with a little bit of magic, where this time we review Magic Users Club.

(0:00 – 40:15) Review: Magic Users Club OVA – This is gonna be one of those corporate mandated anime reviews by our “Shogunate of Anime” content provider, RightStuf! This time we got a 6 episode 90’s OVA about basically if your schools Harry Potter club was sticking it to your schools anime club, with a love triangle added into the mix. Both host Jonn and Dustin give this show a fair pass, and they’ll get around to the TV series eventually to review.

(40:15 – 1:31:05) Closing Remarks – As per usual, both host talk about issues that came up in the month of May when this was recorded, which means they don’t have much of an impression over a month later, but oh well. We bring up James Rolfe viewpoints on the new Ghostbusters film and the SJW retaliation against that. We also discuss how Chris Chan wants a job at Sega on his terms, how internet piracy has changed over the past decade, our opinions on how to support the anime industry, Dustin love for Pure Pwnage, the need for comments on our site, Rotten Tomatoes is a rotten review site, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – The national anthem for the Japanese Harry (Satanist) Potter Club…

ED – This anime magic might just have a hold on you tonight…

It sure seems that were on some kinda Gundam bandwagon, with us talking about Gundam the Origin manga in the last episode, and now the recent release of the Origin anime. We figured now is the time to hit the bullseye with our bulky grey pre-One Year War Guntank before it grinds to a halt and we don’t care as much. So, let’s dive into Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin I “Blue Eyed Casval.”

(0:00 – 52:00) Review: Mobile Suit Gundam – The Origin I “Blue Eyed Casval”: It seems that when anime gets adapted from a manga source, people seem to be up in arms about the final outcome, which is usually for the worse. However, Jonn and Zeonic believe this is a pretty good adaptation in terms that Jonn has read Vol. 5 of the manga and Zeonic has not. So to Zeonic, this is all fresh to him, where as Jonn sees it as pretty accurate and better structured than in the manga. We of course start things off with the current decay of Radioshack, which then leads us to rant about current anime fans taste in anime, what is considered really “filler” in anime, diving into the “pre” Gundam universe, and how one should watch the Gundam series with Origin now being animated. Also, Colony Drop put out their initial reaction of this OVA, and it seems their viewpoint is a bit different than ours, or try a lot.

(52:00 – 1:32:21) Closing Remarks (a.k.a. more Chris Chan talk): Jonn and Zeonic spend a good amount of time closing things out with Zeonic trip to a comic book store in Athens G.A., the card game Superfight!, Marvel movie rights, R.I.P Leonard Nimoy and R.I.P USS Ranger (aka, the aircraft carrier in Top Gun and Star Trek IV), and of course breaking down the audio recording of a past love by our favorite lolcow. All this and more in this episode…

OP – Zabike still lives on…

ED – Welcome to the CWCville…

Thank you Doomstink for reminding me of Leonard Nimoy… (1:49 for the reference)

AoY Podcast # 38 – Get in the Zone! Megazone 23 Part 2 Review


Megazone 23 part II_raw_avi_000003294

Also known as: “WHO DID YOU SAAAAAY?! JOHNNY….WINTERS?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:18:03)

We are still kicking it for the month of March, as we still get zoned into the madness that is the Megazone 23 OVA series. This time, we cover the maybe-once-hated, but-now-probably-not-so-much sequel to the first Megazone 23 OVA.

As Zeonic will say in this podcast, he does like Part 2 a little bit more than Part 1, only because its straight up on what its trying to tell, and it has one of Zeonic favorite anime directors doing his first directing job, Ichiro Itano. If you want to see an anime that Itano directed that won’t make you feel scared or hate anime for the rest of your life, this is that anime. This of course has bikers who are just pure Trash, rad 80’s to the max, doggy style sex scenes (I ment to say 45 seconds not 45 minutes long, sorry guys), taking down the system, and Sex Wax on your back. Of course, there is no need for time codes on this one as we do stick to the review… most of the time. Zeonic goes off the rails to mention how the new 300: Rise of an Empire movie is really dumb as far as Zack Snyder sex scenes goes, how wrasslin babes from the 80’s can do some voice acting and have cameos in this OVA, how anime dubbing has come a long way to fall flat on its face, Toonami talk in general on shows that have ended and started, and much more.

You can watch the whole International Dub on Youtube from this guys channel, and check the comments for some good pieces of info that we may or may not have covered on the podcast.

So, March Madness has come upon us. I know that is mostly related to College BeeBall, but Jonn and I cannot dedicate ourselves to a sports anime to review this time around, or really ever (sorry, but trying to watch all of Slam Dunk with no compilation movies in a month is a herculean task that is far too great for us to handle). So, we decided to keep things a bit simple, as we found our zone of focus for the next few episodes, and i’m talking about Megazone 23.

There isn’t a need for time codes this time, since we only get to focus on one anime for a change. Right off the bat we dive right into discussing pretty much everything about what is in Megazone 23 Part 1, and what we can try and make sense of in terms of the story about halfway into the OVA. We of course stray off topic (or really dig deeper) to talk about Robotech: The Movie and how that connects to the Megazone 23 anime. We also mention the other Megazone 23 OVA’s that we will get around to do reviewing (and try not to spoil too much), the differences in each of the dubs for the Megazone OVA’s, how we found out about Megazone 23, and general Robotech talk. We also finish things off in talking about people who are no longer with us that I bought my anime from, people we know on the internet, (SPOILERS) what could be our tentative podcast schedule for the next few episodes, Zeonic taking a trip to land of the rising sun, and much more. 

I should also point out, I recently heard the ANN Cast episode where they interview Carl Macek. I (and the rest of the internet) are wrong as to why Robotech The Movie failed. The real reason according to Macek: Robotech The Movie did really well in the test audiences in Texas and not everyone hated it. What pulled the project was Cannon Films getting cold feet on their end and not letting it go to all the theaters it should have, plus they went under financially at the same time. You can find more info about that about the last 30 minutes of the interview.

The alternative ending added to the Robotech: The Movie… you can kinda tell from looking at the video, that don’t look “original.”

All I have to do is get past the 20 minutes i’ve seen of this piece of crap…. and I will lose hope in humanity…

As I said in the podcast, it was either the Streamline version or the ADV version of Megazone to watch. I think we picked the better poison…

To say that Japan “liked” Streets of Fire in the 80’s is a HUGE understatement…
